Faith- In Progress

This is a 9″x12″ mixed media painting on wood.
This is in progress and the working title is ‘faith’ but I am not sure if that is a keeper.
The idea of Faith and the actual word ‘faith’ has been creeping up in my life a lot lately.
Something that you know in your heart even if it doesn’t make sense in your head. This is what faith is. I believe in my heart that my husband has not been given the ability to write beautiful music so that he can work in an office.
This I believe for myself as well. Surely if you are given talent, inspiration and drive you should continue on. Not blindly, no, not blind faith but calculated faith? Perhaps?
The faith to be an artist and know that somehow you are going to be able to pay the bills next month.
The faith that your cat will return after a week.
The faith that you will have enough paintings for your upcoming show.
The faith that those paintings won’t be complete stinkers.
The faith that people won’t see through your confident facade.
The faith that you can keep having the faith.
